Who We Are
Since 1954, Opportunity Village has been dedicated to helping people with disabilities find the very best version of themselves. Through workforce development, community employment, day services, inclusive housing, arts and social recreation, they are able to find new friends, realize future career paths, seek independence and community integration, and unleash creative passions. Opportunity Village thrives with the funding from our social enterprises, signature events and the generous philanthropy of our donors and community partners. Together, we are successfully empowering, employing, and serving people with disabilities – positively impacting lives.
Opportunity Village operates four employment training center campuses and a Thrift Store in Southern Nevada and hosts some of the most popular special events and fundraisers in all of Las Vegas, including the Magical Forest, HallOVeen, and the Las Vegas Great Santa Run.
Opportunity Village is fortunate to be able to pay out nearly $3.7 million dollars in wages and benefits to adults with disabilities in our community, and are able to relieve the burden on the Nevada state government. The reduction in demand for services accounts for approximately $30.4 million in net subsidy for Nevada taxpayers annually.
Our organization is almost entirely self-funded. Nearly 70 percent of our funding comes from our business contracts, donors and fundraising events like the Magical Forest and the Las Vegas Great Santa Run. Because of this, the people Opportunity Village serves do not pay a dime for any of the myriad programs and services we provide.
